Top Five is back and ready to recommend some music to you! This week, I’m sharing my top five Up-and-coming artists from Spring 2022 that you need to check out.
Toronto, ON-based Pop/Country singer-songwriter Peter Peres released his debut EP, Before & After You on June 3, 2022. The EP tells a story of what happens during a relationship; being the before and what may happen after the relationship ends; being the after.
Red In Revenge is the debut release of Toronto-based artist Sophie Powers. The release brings the energy of a hyper pop meets punk amalgamation with hip-hop beats mixed throughout the EP. It shares a message of being a carefree person with an attitude while at the same time being able to be vulnerable and emotional. While just a short 17-minute runtime, it packs a punch.
London, Ontario-based emerging artist SBO Swampy has recently unveiled his new single, “Falling”, which is the lead track off of his debut seven-track EP, SBO WRLD, which was released on May 6, 2022, via Morojele Music Group Inc.
Tommy Charles is an up-and-coming country artist, originally from Quebec and now calling Langley, BC home, that has been newly signed to Vancouver-based label Crank Music. His sound is country classic with a soulful touch. His debut single, “Lookin’ Like That,” was released, via Crank Music, on June 17. His music video was also released on the same day.
